Title: As-built information Essential information every facility manager is looking for
Lindegård, Leo
Abstract: The AEC industry is largely criticized for poor information recording and sharing and the fragmented use of information. These problematic features are greatly affecting the transfer of information produced in the design and construction phase which should be communicated to the facility management phase. By and large, facility managers heavily rely upon this information to perform their tasks in an efficient way. Furthermore, Building Information Modelling (BIM) which provides an organized structure for information management, currently is mostly used for the modelling purposes in the design of the buildings. This master thesis shed a light on the current delivery of as-built information and the fundamental deficiencies with the current method and format of delivery. Moreover, the essential information which is supposed to be collected and stored through these models and then ultimately handed over to benefit Facility Management (FM) is benchmarked. Consequently, it is concluded that, BIM as a reliable information management tool could effectively meet the challenges and improve the current information delivery. BIM could make the information retrievable, accessible and audited, but could also evolve the information utilization in more value creative ways such as enabling a loop of information between different actors which could result in knowledge creation. This master thesis contributes to a method in which FM-BIM specialists could define a structure for an organized and effective information delivery in which all the parameters, objects and information incorporated to those objects are defined to the BIM software which will make the task of locating the information of buildings components more efficient.
